Covent garden: shopping and shows in the west end of london
A stone's throw from Soho and Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden is steeped in history, dating all the way back to ancient Rome. A major hot spot for shows and shops since the 17th century, it created a new identity after relocating its historic food market, becoming a staple part of London life.
Although its central square, which is entirely pedestrianised, is now home to the most prestigious British and international brands, this former fruit and vegetable market has not forgotten its original role as a hub for small businesses.
Curious browsers and bargain hunters can spend hours wandering the shops and stalls of Jubilee Market and Apple Market in search of clothing, trinkets and other one-of-a-kind antiques!
In terms of nightlife and entertainment, Covent Garden is the place to be.
Many street performers flock to this area, while the various venues present some of the most famous concerts and musicals in the world.
Classical music lovers will enjoy the Royal Opera House, where members of the Royal Ballet and internationally renowned artists perform in celebrated ballets and operas.
Anyone who wants to discover the history of London transport should check out the London Transport Museum, located just a stone's throw away, featuring an incredible steam underground train and the first double-decker buses.
Finally, on the other side of the Piazza, strollers can admire the luxurious homes of Seven Dials, connecting Covent Garden to Soho, where the streets form a small select village and young people frequent barbers, beauty salons and vintage shops in the true English style!
